What midi commands (More in-depth question!) does GTL listen for?
Hi, I'm using a footswitch successfully to send midi commands. However I'm also experimenting with using a sequencer in AUM to mimic these commands. I can set it up to send messages on the same channel and CC number. BUT... my pedal sends 2 values for my press - 127 on press, 0 on release, though I count it as one action conceptually.
I mimicked this, and got variable results, I think due to what the sequencer was sending. BUT...
I think GTL will respond to any ONE message, and it will just flip its state? If so, does that mean if 2 messages sent in quick succession (as on my footswitch) it ignores one of them? I've checked this with a mdi monitor, and GTL is triggered by one midi value sent from the sequencer, but it seems it can be any value, as long as it's the right CC and channel. Is that correct?
The issue I'm having (which is I think arising from the behavior of the sequencer) is that I don't get behave consistently behaviour. It is a clip launcher (Imaginade LK - Matrix); I draw in the values into the clip, then launch the clip when I want. Say I draw a value in at beat 3 of a 1 bar clip. The first time I launch the clip it sends that value at beat 1, at beat 3 and right at the end, so 3 times, leading GTL to record at beat one, play at beat 3, and start recording again at the end of the clip and not stop recording. But on subsequent launches of the clip it doesn't send the message at beat 1. Only at beat 3 and at the end. So GTL records where I wanted and plays at the end of the clip, which is more useful.
I will take this issue up with the developer, but I want to make sure I have a correct understanding of what GTL responds to. I think it responds to any midi message on the assigned CC, and just flip its state on the next message. And also that bit about ignoring the 2nd of 2 rapid presses?
Actually the other thing is I had tried to draw a short ramp in the sequencer between 2 values, thinking this would work like the footswitch. But it triggered GTL multiple times over the course of the ramp, which was something like an 1/8 or 1/16 note duration, so that has me confused a bit.
Any clearing up of the details on this would be appreciated, thanks!
